Illegal alien Oscar Ayala-Arizemendi reportedly imprisoned a woman for 18 months in his home. He repeatedly raped and beat her with a hammer and forced her to take drugs. He also booby-trapped the house so she would not escape.
The News.au reported:
POLICE in the US have arrested an illegal immigrant who allegedly imprisoned a 27-year-old woman as a sex slave in his booby-trapped home for 18 months.
The New York Daily News reports that Oscar Ayala-Arizmendi, 36, has been charged with multiple rape, assault and drug possession charges after the woman escaped from his house outside Buhl, Idaho, and told authorities she had been repeatedly raped and abused.
The case is reminiscent of the notorious Cleveland House of Horrors case, in which Ariel Castro kept three women in vile conditions for years.
Unlike Castro and his victims, the relationship between Ayala-Arizmendi and the unnamed woman appears to have started on a consensual basis, with her moving in to his house two years ago — however within six months the situation had degenerated to such an extent that he was locking her in his bedroom and forcing her to use a wastepaper basket as a toilet.
She told police that Ayala-Arizmendi forced her to smoke methamphetamine once or twice a week and on occasion walked her around the house with a rope on her neck “like a dog”.
The paper reported that the woman had lost count of the number of times she had been raped and beaten.
When police raided the house they found elaborate electrical booby traps, boarded-up windows, locked and chained doors and video surveillance.
